Really had hoped there'd be improvement after all this time. Even with auto pair on from Manage Devices, if the phone is locked then you are presented with a black screen. On PC, you have to re-enable the connection so often that it's useless. What value is it to use a different device if you have to be near enough your phone to allow pairing in the first place. Great idea, potentially killer feature that they've left half baked. Such a shame.

****Edit: usb connectivity option has been restored, this review has been updated to reflect the much better experience while using this app**** This app was really good back when it was called SideSync. Unfortunatelya few updates ago; the ability to use USB for connecting to the PC which by the way had a far superior connection quality and faster response time with regards to the user interface and was much more stable.

When it works, it's pretty good. Allows screen mirroring, which allows me to access everything on my phone. It just doesn't seem to maintain a very stable connection and when it loses the connection, you have to force stop it on the phone, and go to the task manager on the PC to kill the background process, then restart it all, just to get it to reconnect. Maybe there's an easier way, but I haven't found it. With SideSync, there was a USB connection option which was much more stable. Notifications seem to work well, when it stays connected. You can reply to text messages when you get a notification, without mirroring your screen, but if you want to initiate a message, you have to either pick up your phone, or mirror the screen and do it that way. All in all, this seems like it garners an incomplete rating. Allow me the ability to initiate texts without mirroring or picking up the phone and this would be a giant leap in functionality.
